Ladies Gun Cane
Item #: NEW-0011512

I paid retail for this rare cane some years ago but since I am selling my cane collection I am pricing it for what I paid for it.  This cane was made in St. Ettienne France..  When you remove the tip you find the tool used to cock the trigger. The dealer suggested that I use another tool to avoid breaking the mechanism.  See scan.  The short end is used to cock the trigger and the longer one is used to remove the spent cartridge. The tip of the cane is removed to shoot and you pull the mechanism up to release the trigger.  This, of course should never be fired and it is hard to imagine a woman or for that matter a man, to ever be successful when faced with immediate danger. The dealer demonstrated to me that the mechanism worked but I must admit that I was unable to reproduce it.  The cane handle is brass.  The cane measures 32 inches tall.  I will send the extra tool with the cane. Paypal will not be accepted for this item though payment plans are available.
